, Home to Music in the Vines and David Watson

Welcome to Music in the Vines Recording Label

David Leshare Watson MITV was founded by David Watson 1998, in the city of Sonoma CA. David saw that some great musicians were not getting the breaks and needed to have a label and home base.

In the beginning, five artists plus David were featured on the MITV website, and within six months there were twelve. In addition to the MITV artists, we also offer music from great musicians on independent labels, further adding to our musical offerings. MITV distributes exclusively through the internet and word of mouth.

Compact Discs by these and all MITV artists may be purchased on-line through our fully encrypted, safe, secure shopping cart system using your Visa or Master Card and recently newly added Square card service.

MITV also sell the finest music Books available (Sher Music Co. Music Books) for jazz, latin and instruction books for beginners and professionals, plus play-along tapes and CD's.
